betsat giriş. I absolutely loved everything about APrivate Affair. The acting, in particular from the beautiful Aura Garrido and the wonderful Jean Reno. The handsome detectives and the rest of the amazing cast, also the stunning cinematography, the locations, the period, the CGI, the comedy snippets, I really loved the sinister plot as well.

The series reminded me very much of of one of my favourite murder mystery series of all time, The Miss Fisher Murder Mysteries, but with a bigger budget and production values.

To me, A Private Affair is just pure class. My new favourite murder mystery series. Looking forward to more seasons. I really hope A Private Affair is renewed.

A Private Affair watchseries. This was great fun: beautiful photography, well-acted, with the crisp pace of action comedies of an earlier era. Aura Garrido in the starring role gave a sparkling, magnetic performance, and her costar Jean Reno was solid as ever, with excellent chemistry between the pair. Ángela Molina as Garrido's mother doesn't have a large role, but holy cow she's a good actor, and every bit as beautiful as she was in the Bunuel films of the 70s.

Now, for some bad: (1) the show is full of anachronisms (as others have mentioned), normally not a big problem but in this case you start to notice them and they become a bit intrusive; (2) the main character actively and annoyingly avoids opportunities to reveal the bad guy on many occasions; (3) several times she switches from "this person must be the murderer" to "I'm going off alone with this person to find a clue" in a matter of seconds; (4) she has superhuman powers of recovery from serious injuries; (5) the ultimate motivation for the murders is not at all convincing.

Had this been an adaptation from an established book it would have been better. Crafting a good mystery requires great skill, and even the great screwball mysteries of the last century (eg the ones written by Craig Rice) worked not only as comedies but also as interesting, clever puzzles. This one is seriously lacking. However, I'm still going to give it 8 stars, just because it was so much fun to watch.

Two more things: (1) Absolutely watch it in Spanish (though switching on a firestick is harder than it ought to be). (2) If you like Reno in this show, seek out the movie Wasabi.

So far have only watched episode 1, so I may alter my review and rating by the end. The storyline is engaging and the characters are fun, but the anachronisms are really throwing me off and distract from the story.

The story takes place in the '40's but there are modern road markings on too wide streets, modern cranes at the port, the term serial killer is used 30+ years too soon - and that was just in the first 30 minutes. Seven more episodes to go, and I'm wondering what's next - and I don't mean with the story.

OR - was this intentional, and I've failed to register the intent of the director?

I'd been looking forward to this since it was announced but it turned out to be such a disappointment. It was almost another very good Spanish series (there are so many of them) but, sadly, it misses the mark badly.

I don't know what it is, but although Jean Reno is one of our favourite French actors, he just doesn't work here in the role of the butler. Neither my wife nor myself could put our finger on it but he just wasn't convincing. We don't know why, but he doesn't work.

As to the lead character. Well, it's not the actress's fault. She can only do what the director and the writer tells her to do. But the character is just incredibly annoying to the point we just had to give up watching after only two episodes.

I didn't want a remake of Australian's Miss Fisher or the Chinese remake Miss S. I wasn't expecting it so that wasn't the issue (unlike other reviewers who wanted a similar character from the sounds of it). I just wanted a character who was somehow believable and not a slapstick comedy cartoon cut-out which is the way she comes across here.

The basic premise of the story is that she can't be a policeman because she is a woman and certainly that is a credible storyline. The problem here is that the way THIS particular woman is behaving, I can't really blame the Glacian police for having nothing whatsover to do with her. That's the problem with the whole story. She might be clever enough to figure out clues, but she then is seen chasing the bad guy who is twice her size barefoot across a rooftop after losing her gun and then helping him not to fall to his death so he can then attempt to kill her? Is anybody really that stupid? That was the final straw. It was just stupid and decided enough was enough and we wouldn't be watching any furhter.

As to the keystone comedy type chase scenes and some of the other supposedy amusing touches. Unnecessary and they don't work in what should have and could have been a serious piece of drama and been directed and written that way.

The plot scenario is fine. It all would have worked if it weren't for the other issues.

Fun1988 19 September 2022

It looks fantastic and I could follow the story. I love Jean Reno. Both the plot and the story are very interesting. I love mysteries and it seemed very promising. Stylistically it is shot very well and the classic women are not allowed on the Police force theme is nicely handled by a very modern women not holding to those ideals. Unfortunately, I cannot follow something dubbed. Its very dizzying and I started to get a headache. If it is available in Spanish, which is its original language. I will watch it again and just use English subtitles which does not bother me. But viewer beware of the dubbing.

The story takes place at the end of the 1940s in Galicia, where a sassy upper-class girl with a taste for mystery, Marina Quiroga, together with her butler Hector, sets out to hunt down the serial killer who has been stalking the city for months. I say it's "cute" because it doesn't seem too serious, even though it's about murder and a serial killer. In the first episode our heroine Marina complains the man her mother would have her marry has a "unibrow." Monobrow first appeared in a novel in the late 1960's and Unibrow in 1981. Frida Kahlo, who died in 1954 is arguably the most famous person with a unibrow on this side of the world, died in 1954. What did they call hers? Her self portraits left it clearly represented. Anyway, I digress. This was enough to make me pause the episode and get more history than I could ever want about the unibrow. So far, it's a great occupant of my downtime. Enjoy!
